Config based addon that boosts CfgVehicles>> Man>>CAManBase>>sensitivityEar (AI hearing), footsteps/gear sounds and JSRS footsteps/gear sounds.

Each pbo is optional, unbinarized and has it's own userconfig\file.hpp so you can fine tune each value to your liking.

Coincidently when running both ai_hearing.pbo and footsteps.pbo/footsteps_JSRS.pbo AI can hear the player/other AI walk/run/sprint almost at the same range as the player can hear it, possibly contributing for some challenging CQC.

Improved AI hearing
Increased footsteps and gear sounds
Increased JSRS footsteps and gear sounds

To install RCA3SFX - AI hearing + footsteps tweaking + JSRS footsteps tweaking you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
Please visit the Arma 3 Mod install instructions page for more information about using custom mods and addons in Arma 3.

Included files:

Unzip to your mods folder.
Copy userconfig\RCA3SFX to your Arma\userconfig folder.

Known issues:
CUP based terrains don't seem to be affected by footsteps.pbo for some unknown reason. I suggest using ArmA2 Sounds For ArmA3 by @maximilionus for footsteps and gear instead. JSRS version is fine.
